    Outstanding! I thought my veggies were a little too brown, but they weren't! The brown on the veggies makes this delicious. I didn't use carrots, as my friend who I was serving this to doesn't like carrots. What a great way to get him to eat his vegetables. He scarfed them down.

    These were good. I was looking for some finger food for a painting party and settled on these. They were easy to make and colorful with tomato tortillas and spinach tortillas. The recipe definitely made plenty. Might change a few things the next time but they were good as is. Thanks for sharing

    Pinwheels are so easy, and tasty. These make great snacks, appetizers or an addition to a light meal. You can always change up the meat or put two types of meat together!

    I love these pinwheels....I use them as sandwiches instead of appetizers. I keep a container of the vegetable mixture in the refrigerator and spread a tortilla with a couple tablespoons of it, then layer on turkey or chicken, then lettuce. They're great for lunch.
